The reaction on the left to billionaire Elon Musk acquiring Twitter under the banner of free speech is truly something to behold.
We haven’t seen such long faces since Donald Trump soundly defeated failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, with CNN taking its rightful place at the head of the funeral procession — liberals appear to be mourning the loss of the ability to control the speech of those who may disagree with them.
When not projecting their own actions, they are revealing intimate details that they’d be better off not sharing. Look no further than CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter, who was busy misleading viewers that by respecting free speech Musk was turning Twitter into the Wild West, where there will be “no moderation and no rules.”
“Look, who knows. I think that’s an example of a broader question for Twitter. Which is: If you get invited to something where there are no rules, where there is total freedom for everybody, do you actually want to go to that party or are you gonna decide to stay home? And that’s a question for Twitter users,” Stelter said on Monday. “Some Twitter users might love the idea there’s going to be absolutely no moderation and no rules at all. Others might not want to be anywhere near that.”

That’s a dishonest assessment, yet when Stelter turned to CNN colleague Matt Egan to support this assertion, he was fully on board.
“No, no, you’re right,” Egan replied dutifully. “And what happens to the advertising? I mean, if there’s no moderation or little moderation to the advertiser, stay away. What does that do to the business prospects for Twitter itself?”
The sentiment seems to be steering people away from Twitter, which has been the reaction of a few. Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King, who is often referred to as “Talcum X” because of the controversy over whether he is truly black, was said to be among the radical left departures from the social media platform, though he later disputed the claim.
But Stelter’s remarks about deciding on going to a party or not stuck with social media users, who responded with merciless ridicule
“Now everybody knows Brian Stelter went to the lamest parties ever. This is the beauty of free speech,” the Hodgetwins tweeted.
As soon as someone starts telling me about the “rules” for coming to their party, I am out

Brian Stelter just revealed that he’s never actually been to a party.

I don’t remember seeing any promise of a free for all but rather rules being applied fairly.
This says a lot about these people and their worldviews.
“My rules are all that matter”
